Funders & Partners
Funders and partners around the world share our mission of helping young people thrive.
Changing the trajectory of the lives of young people takes a collective effort. Over our 60-year history, Search Institute has developed deep connections with foundations and funding organizations that recognize the importance of our research and practice in positive youth development. And our body of research and tools have grown as we partner with educators and organizations around the world who share our mission of helping young people thrive.
We are extremely grateful to the private philanthropists, government agencies, and individual donors who help us generate the knowledge and insight to deepen understanding of critical issues in youth development and advance equity.
We believe that research needs to be integrated into practice, and through research-to-practice partnerships with youth-serving organizations, our team is creating innovative partnerships, tools, and resources that are respected and implemented throughout the world.
